Welcome to Year 1.

Welcome to Year 1 

Our Learning

It goes without saying that we have had an unusual start to the term!  We would like to thank you for all you have been doing at home and the ways you and the children have adapted to the situation we find ourselves in. Normally at the start of term we would send you a letter telling you all about our learning for the term and giving an overview of topic.  Apologies that we are a little later sending this out this term!

Our topic this Spring term in Year One is “Heroes”. No doubt there are many heroes that spring to mind. In addition to superheroes, we will be thinking about people who help us (police, firefighters, nurses etc), the children’s personal heroes, fictional heroes and heroes from the past. 

We will be focussing in science on everyday materials which hopefully is a topic that lends itself well to learning at home. In Geography we will look at seasonal and daily weather patterns and identify the UK on a map and find out about its surrounding seas. In history we will be finding out about the lives of famous people from the past who have positively impacted our world and in art we will find out about pattern. In PSHCE we will look at setting goals and ‘It’s good to be me’ and in RE we will think about why and how we care about people.

Our Homework


At Shire Oak, we encourage creative, project-based homework to allow children to explore wider aspects of a topic and follow their own interests and ideas.
